    Not everyone benefits. You can keep repeating yourself all you like.

    Not 'everybody' benefits from a tax rise, either. However, on average, people from all socio-economic strata have benefitted from this cut.

    Sure. But then if we raise the tax again, every socioeconomic group is worse off. on average. The poorest group, on average, got wealthier, and if you reversed the policy Reese didn't like, they'd get poorer.

    You see, this arcane concept of average outcomes works for policies Reese likes, too.

    Wouldnt it be better to show the stats as distributions eg number of people in each economic band vs tax benefit? Averages in this case seem a very divisive measure.

    You're already confused, if we complicate it more you'll get completely lost.

    The use of averages is the confusing factor. It allows for vague "convincing to whoever wants to believe my bullshit" conclusions.

    I think the top 2 percent or so should be subject to a public results poll every year.

    There is at least some part of them who believe in higher taxes for the uber wealthy to help the poor as they talk about it in interviews, those who champion this belief can be taxed at a higher rate. The rest can keep the current rate.
